The day arrived on 24th of February at Mobile World Congress, 2014 held at Barcelona when Nokia unveiled their first Android based handset, the Nokia X along with the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL. Nokia X (also known as Nokia Normandy in rumors and leaks) was among the highly-anticipated low-end smartphones in past couple of months due to the reason being the Nokia X packed with the toughness of Nokia and the taste of Android.
However, the company announced that Nokia X will be hitting the retail stores immediately in couple of weeks in the most parts of the world, but unfortunately not its way to the United States and it seems that Nokia X is all set to arrive in India on March 15th for Rs. 8,500. The company did announced during the press event that Nokia X will hit retail in Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa for €89. But it seems that the price set for Nokia X to launch in India is slightly higher than the announced price (approx $140), and also higher than the price of the same handset in Malaysia where the price is $120. The price of the Nokia X is also higher than the Nokia X+, but the prices seems to depend on the countries set of rules and taxes which makes the handsets final price.
As far as the Nokia X specs are concerned, the Nokia X+ sports a 4-inch IPS WVGA capacitive display with 80ox480 resolution, a dual-core 1GHz 8225 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 512MB RAM, 4GB of onboard storage which is expandable using a microSd card slot. Other specs includes a 3MP rear-facing camera, Bluetooth 3.0+ HotSpot, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, a USB 2.0 support, a microUSB port for charging and a 1,500mAh battery.
Also, Nokia X use the Android distribution backed by the licensed modules from Google such as Google Play, Gmail etc., but instead used their own Microsoft cloud service. But if user flash a custom ROM onto it, root, then they can give the taste of the Android which we usually see in Android phones.
